Electrifying music, sensational technology, a captivating nightly procession and its signature interactive, audience experiences, Blue Man Group opens inside Monte Carlo Resort and Casino Wednesday, Oct. 10 until April 30, 2013.
The creative forces of Blue Man Group have been working for two years to propel their indescribable celebration of art, technology and music to a whole new level at the Monte Carlo casino floor with a dazzling procession of musical joy and luminescence, which can best be described as an energetic percussive parade designed by a mad scientist. The surging, intoxicating beat will fill the casino as Blue Man Group launches a Percussipede, a musical centipede of percussion instruments, musicians, robots and puppets co-created with world-renowned 3-D designer Michael Curry. Each day, 45 minutes prior to the first show, a Blue Man groove will weave and shake its way through the casino; a musical celebration that will lure and entice unsuspecting visitors into the magical, imaginative world that is Blue Man Group.
“With the new show, we really wanted to have fun, take risks and do something different, by connecting with audiences before they even set foot in the theatre” said Chris Wink and Phil Stanton, co-founders of Blue Man Group. “We’re the only show that combines robots and inventive technology with comedy and inspiring theatrics. It’s an over-the-top experience, that I don’t think you can find anywhere else on the Strip.”
Audience members will be enveloped in a one-of-a-kind, colorful and interactive experience includes the introduction of an assembly-line robot and a sassy humanoid Showbot, as well as an exploration of the human brain. During one of the show’s most electrifying moments, a giant Brain Drum is played, illuminating a neurological pathway high above the crowd. The audience will also experience the joy of a set of giant Smoke Drums that emit mystical, ethereal smoke rings out into the world and a Neuronulum, a newly crafted pipe-instrument worn by the Blue Men which provides musical and visual pulses of energy across a theatre-wide neural landscape.
